Radio 3 Live in Concert: Trio Zimmermann
Trio Zimmermann performs works by Beethoven and Hindemith
Trio Zimmermann – violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann, violist Antoine Tamestit and cellist Christian Poltera – formed in 2007 and has been making waves ever since.
The group is praised for a ravishing sound and commanding performances of the repertoire it tackles.
Tonight they perform Beethoven’s Serenade in D, Op. 8 and string trio in E flat, Op. 3 live from the Wigmore Hall, London. Also on the programme is Hindemith’s striking Trio No. 2.
Trio Zimmermann’s recent disc of Beethoven String Trios was nominated in the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2013, the winners of which will be announced in the May issue.
